Ahh yes I was going to make a thread about this, but thank you Ren =D
We now have a major leak in the ceiling, some of our trees got uprooted, the fences were destroyed and I’ve had no power for two days.
At least someone noticed I was gone sniff
Yesterday I awoke to the first hurricane I’ve lived through in my entire life. It was a category 1 hurricane, so technically it wasn’t bad by hurricane standards, but it was freaking crazy.
I could not fall asleep on Sunday night as the hurricane was so frigging loud. it wasn’t scary, but it was very chaotic and it was something I’ve never heard before. I have not heard a noise so loud as that wind. It was over 145 km, as Ren said and my animals were terrified. The power went out on 11:30 PM Sunday night, and it is currently Tuesday afternoon and my neighbourhood is without power.
If you’re wondering I am babysitting and I’m on the boy’s parent’s computer They live about 1 km away and THEY have power but I do not. I had my first shower in 3 days today. i know you needed to hear that.
By the way, the restuarants and fast food places are INSANE. There are two hour waits in every freaking place, people rushing to get hot food or coffee. Since Nova Scotians have never experienced a hurricane, many of us assume we are therefore going to die and stocking up on gas and hot food will spare uf os that fate. Yes, people are freaking.
People are taking pictures of huge ass uprooted trees and smashed cars and normal stuff like that. I think it’s personally funny that so many people are fascinated by downed power lines and trees on the roads and stuff 8P
my phone is also out, all schools have been closed for two days and 3 people have died so far. Apparently my school’s gym roof has been ripped off so I don’t know when I’ll be going back or if we will just have to steer clear of the gym. All in all this is pretty interesting and I have the utmost respect for anyone who has lived through a hurricane, because i’ve just experienced a category ONE hurricane and it was enough to cause so much shit in Halifax and the surrounding area. A couple ships sank as well and the mayor is saying this will take a long time to get through.
but I’m fine! i was in the eye of the storm, but the wind direction was on our side and a lot of people avoided having their houses being destroyed by falling trees but others weren’t spared of that. And I usually say nothing happens around here:ah-ha!:
